20th December - Hut 264

Time waits for no-one but tonight we definitely got a sense of the waiting that is associated with Advent as a group from the Church of the Good Shepherd on Dyke road took Time For God as their theme.  Time for God is also the name of one of their more informal services held in the church hall at the same time as the parish eucharist.

Hut 264 was framed with a huge clock face through which we could see a nativity scene with sheep up on the hills and an empty manger waiting for the baby Jesus.

The sheep had been made by children at the church and some of them had some real character.

The church also brought along an enthusiastic group of singers who sang out a selection of Christmas carols despite the wind howling a gale around us.

The next hut is alongside Hove Lawns and is number 116 where we will all be United Under the Umbrella of Christmas.
